Great, let's hope he can do some damage against Yao and not pick up stupid fouls. Hope his offense comes back too.

Bynum against Yao should be a great matchup.

Yao has been pwning Bynum.

Bynum just needs to make it difficult for Yao.

Bynum will be just fine.

ON D:
contain. fill gaps. contest shots. rotate. grab boards. dont commit dumb fouls.

ON O:
set some screens and picks.
convert the open dunks and lay ups. dont force the issue vs the more experienced Yao.
foot race and make Yao run the length of the court every chance you get.

Accomplish that and he will have done his job in helping the Lakers.

Hes always played best with a chip on his shoulder. I think this chip is a bit manufactured but whatever. The rox aint running with Yao So ab should be comfortable
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

Really looking for Bynum to have some huge contributions in this next round whoever it may be. If there's some way he can find that explosiveness he once had WATCH OUT.

The goal is to play Yao with one man and not double him. Portland is having to double Yao which is a huge advantage for the rockets. Let Yao get his points and stay home on everybody else and the lakers are good to go. Good to go to the next round. Many want him to still come off the bench but I think you need to have your big body on Yao.

From a matchup perspective, it makes sense. We'll need Drew at his best against Yao.

Didn't he say if they were playing the Rockets, he would start. But if it was the Blazers, Odom was going to start?

Yep. He matches up better against Yao than he did against the quicker and more mobile Millsap, Boozer, and even Okur (who spread the floor).
Andre Iguodala via Twitter - It's not even close...and I'm not talkin bout the score.

Portland's frontline is Pryzbilla and Aldridge. They need Bynum and Gasol to matchup with them.
